Palestinian officials said the two were members of the Islamic Jihad militant group.
The Israeli military confirmed it carried out the attack, saying the two were targeted after they fired mortar shells toward an Israeli border crossing.
Despite announcing a cease-fire earlier in the week, Palestinian militants have continued to fire rockets daily into Israel.
Rockets wounded an Israeli baby Wednesday and Israel retaliated with airstrikes that killed four Gaza fighters. The Palestinians found four bodies Thursday from a tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip that was targeted the previous night.
The violence began last week when gunmen, apparently from Gaza, crossed the border from Egypt and ambushed cars and buses in southern Israel, killing eight people. That was followed by massive Palestinian rocket attacks and retaliatory Israeli airstrikes.
Israel‘s military said it will “not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians.”
